Human Teaching and Human Learning in the Language Class: A Confluent Approach.
Much attention has been given to the imbalance between thinking and feelings in the educative process. Human teaching calls for merging the cognitive and affective processes into one confluent learning experience. Language learning is viewed primarily as a means for affective reflective communication. Personal growth merges with language proficiency in the classroom. The strategies and lessons presented in this book result from five years of pilot projects in confluent teaching and have been tried for all levels of teaching. Usually they are incorporated into already existing methods and materials and serve to expand traditional materials and methods to include affective and interpersonal learning. The book includes 8 chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Gestalt and Foreign Language Teaching; (3) 13 Ways to Spice Up Language Teaching; (4) Who Am I? Astrology, Fantasy, Values; (4) Where Am I Going? Who Is Going with Me? How Will I Arrive There?; (6) Working with the Verb "To Be"; (7) Feeling Words and the Verb "To Be"; and (8) How to Beat the Day-Back Blues. (Author/CFM)
